Webinar: Rise of the Prosumer

August 19@3:30 pm - 4:30 pm EDT

The distribution utility system was designed and built for one-way power flow and relatively predictable loads.  With rapidly increasing penetration of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) across the distribution system, utilities must address new challenges associated with this trend.  Customers can no longer simply be treated as loads on the network because many now have the capability to be energy producers and serve as flexible load assets.  This trend can be described as the “rise of the prosumer”.  Utilities must embrace…
